I can’t decided which is more epic, the endcap of Fisher Price Sesame Street playsets or the end cap of Mego Star Trek Bridge Playsets. In the end, everybody wins….
Custom of the Week – 12/7/2015 – Aunt May
This week the spotlight falls on lilbrosj66’s Aunt May. It’s almost impossible to find a use for the Grandma Walton head, let alone such a perfect fit for a beloved character.
In case you missed it, Mego Meet 2016 has been announced for June 17-18 in Skokie Illinois. This time I’m told there will be one large room for the event giving it a nicer vibe. Pretty exciting stuff!
Details will trickle out at the usual places:
From Issue 25, September 1999 (still credited to the ToyFare Staff) we have “Megoville Squares” when they could still riff on the DC characters a little. I guess this mail away Lady Death offer has probably expired?
More after the jump!
The sales this season at EE have made me a little tired but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re giving some great deals on Bif Bang Pow figures from Twilight Zone, Dexter, Penny Dreadful and the Six Million Dollar man right now. A totally different assortment from the previous two sales.
From issue #5 (January 1998) “Scream” is written by Toyfare staff (no credits yet). I’m going to add one of these a week for the rest of the year, so be sure to book mark us. To see previous posts, click the “Twisted Mego Theatre” tag at the bottom of this post. More after the Jump….
I know a lot of collectors grumbled about the price initially, so this is a nice break if you’re still into “collecting them all!”
Canada’s Mego Gathering is this Sunday in Burlington Ontario Canada. I don’t need to tell you how normal you’ll feel meeting with your herd, very cathartic.
Plus free trading cards and it is a vintage toy show too.
The MegoMuseum broke the news yesterday about this Emerald City Comic’s exclusive Riddler figure from the 1966 Batman series. Unlike past exclusive Figures Toy Company items, ECC went all out and had a new head sculpted and it’s pretty damned righteous.
Such good deeds deserve reward:

I was tempted by the earlier offerings but resisted, even though I love the Kresge designs but this wave with 3 all new characters is another matter…..
Mego Museum launched another video short this week and it’s a look at the Comic Action Heroes Mangler. One of the weirdest toys to come out of Mego. Basically, it’s point is to murder the Green Goblin, that is dark.
From issue #92 “Dude where’s my Thor” written by McCallum, Aclin and Oat. More after the Jump….
Mego Museum reporting in their exclusive #MMFTCNEWS that the 2.0 version of “Mego 8″ Superheroes: World’s Greatest Toys” by Benjamin Holcomb.
If you’re a Mego head and you don’t own a copy of this book, go and buy it now.
Figures Toy Company is offering some pretty sweet deals on the book, including discounts on purchases on their toy items, so if you’ve been holding off on a purchase, this is a good time.
If you’re into Mego and DC Comics, then Christmas just came early as Figures Toy Company just released shots of their 8 inch versions of Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and Mary Marvel figures on their facebook page.
Personally I’m pretty pumped for these, especially more female heroes.
Lots of discussion going on at the Figures Toy Company message board that’s part of the Mego Museum.
You can preorder these at the Figures Toy Company website.
Apologies for the double linking, the MegoMuseum URL is having some issue with Facebook and we’re not really sure why. If you’re an expert on FB and like us, drop us a line.
Every Mego collector has probably wondered at one point what the Mego factory looked like and how everything was made. Thanks to this rare document (the 1978 Mego International Shareholders Report to be exact, which we’ll soon share) we have a glimpse into the Hong Kong wonderland that was Lion Rock.
